We made it to the slopes
Wow, what a day!
We had a fantastic morning learning to ski with some great instructors. Two of which were English and one of them is in university in Cardiff. How crazy is that!? We come to the other side of the world and get taught to ski by someone who lives in our home city! I do love how small this world really is.
Looking at the videos we took, we seem to be going very slowly down the slope, but I'm sure we were going much faster. It felt much faster anyway.
What was really wonderful was that we were all starting together. None of us have skied before so we were learning together. My 3 and a half year old was the first of us to have both skis on and heading down the hill. Amazing! It was so much fun watching her grown in confidence and learn a fab new skill. We will definitely be going again. Although next time I'll get a bigger pair of boots so it's a little less painful.
